The Council will convene a meeting of its Shrimp Review Panel via conference call to address the condition of the pink shrimp stock. Amendment 6 to the Fishery Management Plan for the Shrimp Fishery of the South Atlantic Region established a proxy for a minimum stock size threshold as a parent stock size capable of producing maximum sustainable yield the following year. The Panel will convene to review the current status of the pink shrimp stock and determine whether action by the Council is required at this time. The Panel will prepare a report with its recommendations for review by the Council's Scientific and Statistical Committee and the Shrimp Committee to determine if management action is needed.
